About this author

John Paul Jaramillo holds an MFA in creative writing (fiction) from Oregon State University and, currently, works as Professor of English at Lincoln Land Community College. In 2012 his first collection of composite stories The House of Order was a Latino Book Award Finalist, and in 2013 the editors of Latino Boom: An Anthology of U.S. Latino Literature listed Jaramillo as one of its 2013 top 10 new Latino authors.

His writing has appeared in the Acentos Review, the Copper Nickel Review and in the Antique Children Arts Journal; Fogged Clarity Arts Journal, InDigest Magazine and Verdad Magazine; Paraphilia Magazine, Sleet Magazine and most recently in Palabra, A Magazine of Chicano and Latino Literary Art.

I’ve been waiting to watch Diego Luna’s film and finally had some time this weekend. The reviews were poor on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes and Marshall Ganz–a man who knew and worked with Cesar Chavez–criticized the film for the one dimensional version of Chavez’s life.I have to admit though I found MichaelPeña’s portrayal of Cesar Chavez to be subtle and very powerful.
